A few months ago, you probably noticed the posters in the hallway for the spring break trip to Washington D.C and Philadelphia. You might have wondered what it is about. For this article, I interviewed Mr. Terjesen, who has chaperoned the trip for four years. I’m going to run through where the trip goes, when it takes place, and how to apply next year.
The spring break trip is a multi-day trip for 7th and 8th graders. Students will get to learn about our government, like an in-person social studies lesson. This year’s trip is going to Philadelphia and Washington D.C. The students will visit Mount Vernon and some of the Smithsonian museums. The 2018 trip is already booked.
Next year, the location is New York and Washington D.C. It is open to 7th and 8th graders. Mr. Terjesen will have a meeting sometime in 2018 for the 2019 trip. This trip is expensive, but it covers almost everything including airfare and lodging. If you are interested in going next year, watch out for the posters in 2018! Applications for the 2019 trip will be available in early 2018.
“Congratulations to the lucky students attending, it will be a life changing experience!”
